To appraise clinicians of the problems that may be encountered in the diagnosis and management of Cushing's syndrome, we present a case report of a 20-year old female, who was admitted with a recently developed central obesity, ammenorrhea hirsuitism, proximal myopathy and depression. She was found to have multiple striae, thin skin, elevated blood pressure glycosuria and hyperglycaemia. Morning and mid-night plasma cortisol concentrations revealed elevated levels, with a loss of diurnal variation. There was a failure of the normal suppressibility of cortisol secretion by low doses of dexamethasone, while a significant suppression of plasma cortisol concentration was observed with high doses of dexamethasone...

A 15-year-old phenotypic female referred for the investigation of primary ammenorrhea, was found to have a 45,XO karyotype and an ovarian cyst. She demonstrated some of the features of Turner's syndrome, as well as virilization. On laparotomy, she was found to have bilateral gonadoblastomas. She was treated with total abdominal hysterectomy and bilateral salpingo-oophorectomy. Subsequently, repeated chromosomal analysis detected the presence of Y chromosomes, which was confirmed by the use of polymerase chain reaction (PCR)...

The present study documents a characteristic tomographic sellar abnormality in five patients with Forbes-Albright syndrome (ammenorrhea-galactorrhea) and surgically proved pituitary microadenomas. This abnormality, noted in patients with normal-sized sellae, consists of asymmetric erosion of the anterior inferior wall of the sella turcica. Utilizing the twin criteria of an elevated serum prolactin and characteristic sella abnormality, herein described, previously unrecognized patients with pituitary microadenomas can be diagnosed and treated effectively...

On the basis of the results of the analysis of FSH, LH, and prolactin values in the serum of patients with secondary ammenorrhea, four groups of patients were formed: group 1 with low values of both gonadotropin hormones, group 2 with low FSH and high LH values, group 3 with high FSH and high LH values, and group 4 with the basdal gonadotropin values within normal. The use of functional tests proved helpful in the differentiation of the causes of amenorrhea. The use of the LH-RH test is of particular significance in the differentiation of the degree of changes in patients from group 1 and 4...
